    In my experience, No.

    Try some sadowsky nickel extra longs.

    Maybe. Depends on the bridge. I use Super Slinkys on my 35" scale Spector Legend 5. The bridge is top load and there is a minimum of distance between the string anchor and the bridge saddle.

    Regular scale D'addarios will not work.
